Over at Computex, Intel showcased its "Honeycomb Glacier" laptop form factor concept. Systems based on this form factor feature more than one screen. One of the first examples of "Honeycomb Glacier" is the new ZenBook Pro Duo from ASUS with ScreenPad Plus (see video below).
Driving form-factor innovation into high-performance systems, Intel demonstrated a new form factor concept (code-named "Honeycomb Glacier") to enable new experiences for gamers and creators. The Honeycomb Glacier concept features an integrated companion display for more screen real estate to game and create, all in a laptop. The design powers more immersive gaming experiences by making key information persistent on the companion screen to access things like level maps, inventories, status and more with no applications overlapping your game play or switching between applications. The companion display also enables simultaneous gaming and streaming, giving streamers the chance to interact with their audience real time without sacrificing their game play.

Intel is collaborating with OEMs to bring to market companion display systems based on this visionary concept and powered by the latest 9th Gen Intel® Core™ mobile processors, with the first being the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo with ScreenPad Plus.

Additionally, with new laptops coming with Wi-Fi 6, connecting to a network delivers the best Wi-Fi experience. Intel showcased new Wi-Fi 6 home routers and gateways powered by Intel technology from AVM*, Edimax*, Elecom*, NETGEAR* and TP-Link* that are launching this year.
